Microsoft Errors

I was checking my mail when I got home (it's a slow process at times, especially because I wrote checks for bills first). I found that I had received one of my newsletters.

I receive a lot of newsletters, but for me, NYTimes "Circuits" is often pretty special. Today's newsletter featured the newest article from David Pogue (who, IIRC, used to be with MacWorld magazine). The article, "A New Microsoft Blunder" describes the newest Microsoft marketing gaffe, a fake ad which was fairly easy to spot.

To read the fun, Microsoft's Switch (nytimes, requires password). It is things like this that make my day.
